I have been waiting to make some news public. I sincerely hope that we've told all the right folks (especially the kids) first. Ever since my niece announced her wedding, after the fact, on her MySpace, I've tried to tell folks stuff individually first. But with a large and geographically scattered family, I am sure there is some one that I have forgotten. If so, my apologies.
We are in the throes of getting ready to move about 1000 miles away from New England. We're going to give the Midwest a try. I'm scheduled to start a new job in mid-September if the state licensing board can do their paperwork on schedule. Meanwhile, we are packing and cleaning and giving away tons of stuff, so we can put the house here on the market and sell it quickly.
So I will be very scarce for a while.
If you need me for some reason, personal email with an eye grabbing subject line is probably your best bet. Blog comments are emailed to me as well.
Thanks for all the prayers of support.
I'm not planning to abandon the blog!
